Dubai, 16/4/2001: Arab Digital Distribution (ADD), and Mohamed Ben Sulayem, Middle East Rally Champion, revealed plans to launch this week a Middle East wide competition in conjunction with the forthcoming international motor Rally championship in Jordan on 17th to 19th May 2001 in which Ben Sulayem, the current champion, will participate.

The exciting competition will result in seven lucky winners from across the region receiving an all expenses paid trip (from their Middle East location to Jordan), hotel accommodation and spending money to watch the thrilling final of the Jordan Rally on the 19th May. In addition, they will be interviewed on ART TV network, get to spend a day with Mohamed Ben Sulayem as he takes the winners through some of his expert tips for safe driving and enjoy the company of the Arab world's top motor sport champion.

The competition will be open to all new and existing Al Awael and ART subscribers in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, Kuwait, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Oman and Bahrain.

"We are very excited about launching this competition with Mohamed Ben Sulayem as one of the Arab World's most internationally recognized sportsmen," noted Dr. John Tydeman, CEO of ADD.

"All you have to do to enter is be a subscriber (existing or join while competition is running) of any Al Awael bouquet available in your country. Then, simply contact an ADD call center or ADD distributor near you or access our web site, www.adduniverse.com, and complete the form to participate. The draw will take place on 9th May 2001 during which we will contact lucky contestants by telephone until seven winners have been selected," said Dr. John Tydeman, CEO of ADD.

"Indeed, we see our exclusive cooperation with Mohamed as complementing the very unique and extensive sports programming on our newly launched Al Awael family bouquet that includes English Premier League (exclusively on ART from May 2001), ART Sport, ART Sport2, Manchester United TV, Real Madrid TV, Eurosports, EuroSports News, Nile Sports and SuperSport," added Tydeman.

"To win, however, participants will first have to answer correctly a key question about my rallying history," confirmed Mohamad Ben Sulayem.

This year's Jordan rally (17-19 May 2001) features a new 1040-km all-desert route, 5 special stages each repeated twice, and a 2-km super special stage. These new course challenges will add an extra element of surprise for both the drivers and the spectators in Jordan.
